School Council 

2024-2025 School Year

We invite any interested parents/guardians to consider joining our OT School Council in September. Information about our school council and the elected positions will be shared in early September. A call for nominations for those interested in an elected role on Council will also go out in early September. We look forward to working with our parent/guardian community again next year. 

Purpose of the School Council

School Council's are mandated under the Education Act.  Like other school councils, the Oakville Trafalgar School Council advises the principal and, where appropriate, the school board on issues affecting the education programs and the operation of the school. The Council’s role, in collaboration with the principal, staff and community, is to provide input and advice with regard to school goals and to enhance learning opportunities, through various activities, for the benefit of all students in the school.

The membership reflects both the school and the community and includes parents and guardians of students, the principal, a teacher, a student representative (secondary school councils), a non-teaching school staff member as well as members from the community at large. Parents and guardians make up the majority of council members.

For more information, please visit the HDSB School Council website.

School Council Constitution

Joining School Council

The election of members for School Council is held at the Annual General Meeting each year in September.  We encourage parents of students presently enrolled at OTHS, and especially those who are new to the school, to attend the meeting and consider joining Council. We are a friendly group of people working towards the common goal of ensuring that OTHS provides the best educational opportunity for our children.

School Council Awards

School Council awards a number of awards to outstanding students at the Commencement Ceremony each year. 

The recipients of these awards are chosen by the school awards committee. To receive the award a student must demonstrate support for various learning opportunities through artistic, technical or athletic endeavours.
